borders strikes are turkey fryers and syria again in response to mortar attack of the turkish prime minister says under all will go to war if provoked. police firing tear gas and water cannons that anti government demonstrators in buffalo as people rally in anger at an activist death in custody. and to the return of the republic crowns a rally for the nation independence frustrated with rome's concert hall a volunteer stage to make a comeback. you
know watching r g a y from moscow with me to bang with say turkey has launched a fresher tillery strike on syria in response to another mortar attack from across the border ankara began his shelling on wednesday in retaliation for syrian water bomb that killed five civilians a middle east correspondent policia has the details. we do know that there's a mortar bomb landed in the countryside in turkish that territory so it is possible that no one in fact was injured or killed we also have no word on who was responsible for the later mortar from syria what i can tell you though is that almost immediately turkey responded and went on the offensive meaning that we have the situation along the turkish syrian border intensifying it's not a back on wednesday when a mortar bomb fired from syria killed five turkish citizens and since then the situation has nearly escalated we're hearing from the turkish prime minister that
he does not want a situation of war but he has warned the syrians not to make a fatal mistake and that is a quote from him and taste his resolve the syrians will this side have apologized for those what is interesting is that you need to realize that these waters that are being fired from syria into turkey all close range missiles now they are coming from territory that is controlled by the syrian rebels so this is why many are suggesting that perhaps they are being fired on purpose they're being fired to provoke the situation and create a false flag operation now the reasoning behind this could be that turkey for some time has been calling for a no fly zone it might be provoked into calling for foreign intervention and for nato to get involved in fact we've heard some rebel leaders in exile call for this although the majority of exiles in the majority of syrians are against this but the situation intensifying on the ground and everyone concerned that we could see this border tension into some kind of regional conflict
a battle certainly is intensifying the latest there's a video that has now been released by the syrian rebels we have no confirmation as to the or patient of the video but in it it does claim that the rebels will start executing forty eight shiite muslims from iran if damascus does not meet the demands of the syrian rebels now there has been dialogue and some kind of negotiations. wow between the syrian government and the reigning government at the same time just outside damascus the rebels have shot down a syrian helicopter gunship but this comes as shelling continues between both sides in several cities around the country russia has come to the fore in a mediator a role it has said that it hopes the united nations arab envoy to syria will be coming to moscow perhaps later this month and the two they hope that both sides will express caution moscow also saying that these cross border incidents are
completely unacceptable. after turkey's parliament authorize troops to launch cross border operations against syria the country's prime minister warned that ankara will not shy from war if provoked author and journalist option retarded believes damascus the world would tell you if pulled into a border conflict. this kind of flashpoint is the kind of flashpoint that can create world war three. some people have it this is a false flag operation we're getting these reports of this continued as it were a reaction from the turkish government ok so a new one will face political problems at home but then why were they speaking with the iranians talking about how this needs a diplomatic solution not a military one if turkey continues down to the agreements made in violent this will draw in a way to situation a wider fears here over war and risks expanding it the people of syria and the people of turkey will know and if it from us nato says that they'll defend any nato member if turkey continue like this syria might see itself getting increasingly
desperate and that retaliate with full force then it's up to the united states and britain and european nato allies just figure out what to do what we need urgently right now is a peace conference set me it's up to china and russia because they're the only people stopping a full scale war the kind of war that will only help the forces it looks like such as al qaida united states is again supporting al-qaeda and turkey who stood to one should know much better than to try and help al qaeda he's been doing his best to fight the forces of al qaeda all through his presence. riot police and bus train have fired tear gas and water cannons that anti-government protesters after a funeral march for an activist who died in custody turned violent demonstrators accuse the government of denying the man treatment by the authorities claim he died

a hotbed of taliban militancy and a major faith because of the you with strife well arty's army correspondent tariq more here dean has been following the convoy itself and joins us live now good to see you there tariq so just how big was this convoy becoming while you were out the . right before i answer how big is that let me tell you again i describe it high hopes and high risk and talked of disappointment on the biology of p.d.i. which is by kissed on to her again soft chairman of a known con i actually joined the convoy. in the outskirts of islamabad heading towards the rice made con which is there at the end of the one job city by job prevents where the convoy is going to stay on my hair and for the morning they are planning to proceed to ours south with the rest

break stay with us. his day starts at five am even earlier in the winter tending to his flock of story hundred sheep in the mountains and plains of t.v. thirty five years old it wasn't the life he dreamt of having studied accounting but you dition unfamiliar with duty dictated that he would take on the care of these animals after his father. has just made camp at their winter found stage setting up his ute judicial to fenian round tent made of diskin. back amongst his family as his job is a lonely one and tough going out in all weathers braving streams of plus to minus forty degrees celsius it's just that i just don't there are certain difficulties there's not enough time for everything i'm almost alone my sister works with my
mother my mother is seventy five she's very old and i miss mountains when i'm in town i spend a lot of time here. so on the survey i simply carrying out the work that his father did and his father before him nothing has changed over many many centuries and that's half the problem it's hard work and many people don't want to come into the industry now and that's where they fit their could die out altogether. it's difficult to manage everything alone i used to have people who helped me but they were no good they didn't take care of the sheep with all their heart they hurt the catalogs with them squirrels and produce with people leaving them coming to the countryside the region's government is having to act making the life of a herd and more attractive than promising largest subsidies for produce and livestock and organizing cooperatives for the sale of day products to ensure the herd it gets a higher fair price i sympathizes with those youngsters leaving for an easier more
profitable life stay in the public's capitol hill but he no longer wishes to join them he enjoys his pastoral way of life and looking for a helper who shares his enthusiasm with more time on his hands he says matter of fact he can start to look for a new wife. there was a large eager to have you with the u.s. defense chief leon panetta has called on the afghan president of bank american troops rather than criticize them he was responding to him because lies complains of this thursday that washington is failing to go after militants a base in neighboring pakistan that's all on the eve of the levantine averse reasons nato forces invaded the country the one that i'm now joined by an anti-war activist and dawn good to see you there now eleven years of war the deaths of
more than two thousand american soldiers in the conflict isn't what has arrived i mean what do you think. well for us how many dead afghanis. the united states has a blind spot to the fact that people tend to have an affinity for their national sovereignty that doesn't disappear just because their country is occupied by the united states but rather gets more or less brought to the fore when that happens we saw this back in vietnam we got reports every night about viet cong which sounded almost like king kong and the humanizing term instead of referring to the national liberation army which was the name of the people that were fighting the u.s. occupation of south the southern part of vietnam the same in afghanistan and iraq for example all of the fighting that's taken place in iraq since the u.s.
occupation is going to refer to was factional sectional you know whatever the fact there is obviously a very strong component that is national liberation effort and you have this manifest in afghanistan to the point where it's now obvious that if you hand an afghan he comprador soldier a weapon and show them how to use it they turn it on the american soldier that handed it to them the people of afghanistan want the united states out and it's a natural thing for that to occur and the united states just doesn't see that speaking about what the afghan people want what will happen to them in two thousand and fourteen when all the troops pull out i mean the thing is a country is still locked in chaos and violence. yes in my opinion and this is shared by many i think one of the goals of the u.s. imperial project is to where they can't completely dominate a place leave the people at each other's throats while they carry off the resources
and so there's agitation for that that's put into play as the united states enters these countries that we have seen for example in iraq we're seeing that in libya although not to the extent that they talk about here there's also an indigenous liberation effort going on there and this was stopped in afghanistan but i think the record answer your question what will happen in two thousand and fourteen is the afghanis will have an opportunity to settle their own national issues themselves without an occupying army directing the efforts back in july the u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton declared of denniston a major ally but now this controversy comes on what has changed since then. i don't know exactly what's in cars i's mind when he makes the statements that he made which are more or less true statements he may be actually just saying finally look we have to face the truth and starts to speak it it may be that he's looking past twenty fourteen and hoping to be able to continue without the army that more
or less installed him on the ground there i don't know which it is but i think that hillary clinton. that was her mission accomplished moment and she really she expresses the wants and desires of the elite in the united states and not necessarily reality which makes these pronouncements mr. running out of time but just quickly tensions between the u.s. and afghanistan have you roaded in the past few months as you know as dozens of foreign soldiers were killed in the so-called green on blue attacks so what forced the local chiefs to turn their guns against a mentos i mean they they were training them they were doing good. again a sense of national identity as sense of patriotism and hostility towards an invader an occupier it's a natural response we leave it right there mr don de bar activist and journalists speaking to us here in our city giving your thoughts thank you for that
thank you to. now it turns out walking your dog of feeding the birds could land you in a lot of trouble in many london pogs civil rights groups have accused the city of cracking down on personal freedoms despite there being let information on what activities are banned and wave and as artists are first reports it's not even the police will be off to you if you break the rules. here in this park in london if your found drinking alcohol or growing up or or even feeding the pigeons you could inadvertently be committing a criminal or third goal a surprise will serve a lot of people the band in london map shows a whopping four hundred thirty five probation zones aimed at tackling and she say she behavior the might of been a good policy idea in theory has local people say and it up a very bad policy in practice meaning hardline crackdowns on the soft this of misdemeanors disconcertingly many bars in london have now hired private contractors
to carry out the enforcement of these fines phil morris knows all about the after his local council hired its full services he received an eighty pound penalty for dropping a cigarette butt and that he maintains he didn't know it was illegal he refused to pay to fruit float. so just to our ex for the private security and surveillance of the ming providers so you called in full sprint offices in the u.k. contracted by some local councils first start the kitted out with cameras and uniforms but their tactics the pursuing these fines often seem far from professional was. on the way to do people we asked phil's local council for their response they told
r.t. these new offices back up for the public who are not with the actions of the minority . and who in their dog fouls. are litter and not get paid unless the issuer find appropriately and surprising then that the areas where x. will have been hired has seen a massive increase in the number of fines that irish eat and there's now concern over whether that is fair or ethical about the current ability of the transparency i recently dealt in the home affairs select committee which looks at these issues with the case of the london bar of new and which has law enforcement officers who are in fact council officials but dressed up like police have been promised them a commission is going to look into it because it's it's actually i think a criminal activity to pretend to be a police officer when you're not and i'm very concerned about how that trend is going i think in the past it would be assumes that people knew the law the law was reasonable and so long as you weren't creating
a problem then you could do what you like but increasingly it seems that that is no longer the case these findings may be surprising for sun but the truth is these types of laws and offenses are being creeping up on us the some time now they're actually growing in number so also the moment you can enjoy the parks in london but if you do not feed. sarah. lunde. moral news for you now miners in south africa have gathered for rally against a dismissal of twelve thousand of their colleagues who were sacked after staging a strike demanding better pay and conditions the protestors are also mourning their colleagues were killed by police in brutal clashes that began two months ago the death toll in the ongoing deadly unrest has reached forty eight. suburbs form of the law has been handed an eighteen month sentence after he stole and then sold on to a journalist the pontiff of private letters paolo gabriele and said he would not appeal

herders had in the old days they needed them it wasn't just a fun thing but these meadows didn't come naturally requiring decades of composting to bring the soil up to farming standard this island is mostly rock. the soil here is very thin and the monks can't just get more of it because they're surrounded by the lake so they have to work very hard in order to provide whatever food they need. they grow their own crops found their own fish and repair their own churches. but the central purpose of the land has always been religious the name on the street surrounded by smaller priories spread through the many archipelago the monks here know their existence is a little different from that of them on the streets here we are out of the way and we do have. bill creams and sometimes tourists as well as. away. from korea to.

power to stop it other countries over remove the soldiers from this dangerous area where they're not doing well we're doing which is all mine. and training our future and to be isn't this very similar to the end of the first world war when it was said the politicians lawyers and soldiers died and the reality was as it is know that our brave soldier lives are being led by ministerial donkey's pull through and after that you were disciplined by the speaker and barred from parliament for five days presumably you knew that what happened that you thought it was worth it it's very well worthwhile it's a very rare event and the result has been that my words have been seen almost all over the world as prison extraordinary effect and i believe that this may well be a turning point in public opinion i believe eighty percent of public opinion would like to see.
